It was tonight I was one step nearer yesterday The truth always one step behind Feeling like its Monday but its Wednesday The past is a constant fight How can I change the feeling that's inside of me How can I change the feeling that's inside of me I’ll tell you why as this feelings been the same for a while How can I change the feeling that's inside of me Looking back I always had an easy day Falling in and out of bars Self destruction is the easy way But the dark shadow carries on How can I change the feeling that's inside of me How can I change the feeling that's inside of me I’ll tell you why as this feelings been the same for a while How can I change the feeling that's inside of me

Fly Higher 04:06
I’ve been thinking back To those summers on the farm There was so much care It'll never be forgot You'll fly higher And higher Oh Nothing ends You'll fly higher And higher And for you you'll be there I Wish you well You will always fly higher still Cause Nothing ever ends Just floated in the wind You'll fly higher And higher Oh Nothing ends You'll fly higher And higher And for you, you'll be there I'm glad you'll meet your love again It's been 7 years or more I've loved to spend the time You'll always be with us You'll fly higher And higher Oh Nothing ends You'll fly higher And higher Oh Nothing ends You'll fly higher And higher Oh Nothing ends You'll fly higher And higher And for you, you'll be there

She’s a beam of light Shining so bright She floats all night on rivers People try but they don’t get by They stand in line and wait for Dreaming dreamy Daisy I shouldn’t but I like you Dreaming dreamy Daisy Oh Oh Come back home Come back home With you all day long He’s a Friday night with fire in sight Looks for a fight till he’s sober this girl he’ll try but never get by So back of the line and wait for Dreaming dreamy Daisy I shouldn’t but I like you Dreaming dreamy Daisy Oh Oh Come back home Come back home With you all day long Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na A bird and a bee Went out on the spree Talk of the town they’re together If you take my hand I’ll buy us some land At the Singing sands by the river There future it was looking bright But his past came back to haunt there night A mob surround him five to one You know what is coming son They say he held his ground with two But they beat him down black and blue But she rose up unexpectedly And chased the way the other three Dreaming dreamy Daisy I shouldn’t but I love you Dreaming dreamy Daisy I shouldn’t but I love you Dreaming dreamy Daisy I shouldn’t but I love you Dreaming dreamy Daisy Oh Oh Take me home Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na

Head High 04:52
Hold your head way up high So high touches the sky So high never look down The futures bright so move on The futures bright so move on When you can't, can't find those pieces The jigsaw in your mind Don't worry nothing is pure No looking back it's onwards and on No looking back it's onwards and on You’ll find a way to put things right So right everything’s fine So fine floating along You’ll never look back no never look back You’ll never look back no never look back Hold your head way up high So high touches the sky So high never look down The futures bright so move on The futures bright so move on

When the thunder hears you calling And I can see you dreaming The sea is burning amber And the distant sun is near I don’t know this place A sunny winter empty house inside I’m not home Wandering all alone now It’s been too long a time No footsteps at the doorway The moon looks like its still I don’t know this place A sunny winter empty house inside I’m not home
10.
Run run where you goina run Double dropped and hit the sun Riding waves in an open grave Flashbacks firing from the sun Out here I’m Nothing with Out you I’m Nowhere Out here I’ve Nothing with Out you I’ve Nowhere to go Run run I should run That guy there he’s got a gun The road is long it’s on and on Shouldn’t be here should be with someone Out here I’m Nothing with Out you I’m Nowhere Out here I’ve Nothing with Out you I’ve Nowhere to go

about

Ross Ainslie is one of Scotland’s finest traditional musicians and composers, playing pipes, whistles and cittern. He is renowned for his highly acclaimed solo material, and as a skilled performer and prolific collaborator who performs regularly with bands Treacherous Orchestra – of which he is a founding member - Salsa Celtica, Dougie Maclean, Charlie Mckerron, India Alba, and with Jarlath Henderson.
He has also received industry recognition for his talent with nominations for Musician of the year at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2013 and Best Duo at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2014 with Jarlath Henderson, nominations for Best Instrumentalist at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2010 and 2012, nomination for Album of the year at the Scots Trad Awards with his debut solo Album “Wide Open” in 2013, as well as nominations in Best Live Act category at the Scots Trad Music Awards with Jarlath Henderson in 2008, and with Treacherous Orchestra in 2009 and 2010. His solo album “Wide Open” was number 9 of 50 in The Scottish albums of 2013 in the Sunday Herald.

In January 2015 Ross was commissioned by Celtic Connections to write a piece for the New Voices series. Ross decided to go outside his comfort zone and try out songwriting for the first time and “Remembering” is what he achieved.

“Remembering” features five songs and three tune sets, from “Head High” which is a song about remaining positive and not dwelling in the past that features some words by the living legend Jock Duncan to a kind of psychedelic, thrash grass suite called “Nowhere To Go” which is in three sections. “Lullaby For Mel” was written for Ross’s friend that he lost far too early and it shows his flair for writing a beautiful slow melody. The album opens with a song called “Change” that reflects on Ross’s drinking days and the decision to go sober. Overall “Remembering” is an open and honest piece of music.
